Beginning his career in the 1950’s as an actor, John Schlesinger quickly became a director in the same decade before achieving acclaim in the 1960’s with films like Billy Liar (1963), Darling (1965) and Far From the Madding Crowd (1967) in his native Britain. Following his Oscar winning debut in America – Midnight Cowboy (1969) – Schlesinger’s films in the 1970’s focused on the down and out and those outside the mainstream world, of which Marathon Man was among the eclectic group of movies he made during the decade.

You'll never look at your dentist the same way after seeing this flick.
I have yet to meet an actual dentist who admits to have ever even heard of this flick. Are they all just trying to change the subject, or are most dentists dull, uninspiring people without interests?

Mine loves it. Along with the 90s horror film The Dentist.

I suspect they are tired of having the same conversation about it, so they have probably wondered why people are so dull and uninspired that they can't talk about a different movie with dentists. ;)

Note that Peggy Cummins - she of Gun Crazy - was in this mostly forgotten British comedy.

forgotten but a good comedy. Now back to Marathon Man 4K which I viewed last night and the picture quality is a definite improvement over previous standard BD . The color scheme in parts has been altered slightly and I like it . Sound seems OK as before.
